VIDEO: Watch as Marvin Akinlabi becomes the 1st Nigerian to play for Real Madrid

Marvin Olawale Akinlabi Park has become the first Nigerian to play for Spanish giants Real Madrid.

The 20-year-old attacker was involved as Real Madrid started their title defence with a goalless draw against Real Sociedad on Sunday.

Marvin Olawale Akinlabi Park was subbed on for Rodrygo in the 70th minute of the game and gave a good account of himself.

He was born in Spain to a Nigerian father and Korean mother. Marvin Park has played for the Spanish U-19 team but eligible for both Korea and Nigeria.
